Buccaneers | Coach discusses kicking situation

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano discussed how losing PK Connor Barth (Achilles') could affect the team's plans in 2013, saying Barth was a weapon with longer field goals. Schiano said he is not sure if PK Lawrence Tynes will be as effective from those distances. "I thought Connor was a weapon in the longer field goals," Schiano said. "He was exceptional over 40 yards. We'll have to play that out. I have not coached Lawrence at all. So, I couldn't tell you. I just look at the numbers. But we'll see. That'll all play itself out."

Fantasy Tip: Even if Tynes does not have the same distance Barth did, he is still a safe option for the Buccaneers and fantasy owners after converting on 33-of-39 attempts in 2012.
